 Hearing impaired patients need a self test system which they can use to                      Software automatically saves test results for doctors evaluation
test their ability to recognize the 11 vowels in American English

The proposed self test system should allow users to have a tutorial
session where it will randomly read out words with embedded vowels giving
the user a chance to hear the correct pronunciation before they attempt to
take the actual test

These words will be displayed prior to the test on the PDA screen
allowing the user to associate the words they see to how they are read

For younger patients the software will have some animation characters
that will appear when they are able to choose the correct word that the
software reads out. This will provide a positive re-enforcement to the child
and making the learning process enjoyable.

The software will save all test results on the PDA for doctor’s review.
